Foodbank already provides food relief to over 1 million Australians per month. In the past year, 3.7 million households experienced food insecurity - that's more than the number of households in Sydney and Melbourne combined.
Food insecurity is now being experienced in homes it has never touched before and 77% of these households experienced it for the first time in the last year.
The face of hunger in Australia is changing, with more than half of food insecure homes having someone in paid work and those experiencing food insecurity for the first time are younger, with mid to higher incomes.
The number one reason households struggle to put food on the table is the cost-of-living crisis - food is the most likely item to be sacrificed to make ends meet.
For every $1 donated, Foodbank can create two meals for someone doing it tough. Funds raised will help Foodbank support communities trying to survive cost-of-living expenses and natural disasters of growing intensity and frequency.
